§ 18. Mr. LIDDALL
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a Weymouth firm is indiscriminately sending out by halfpenny postage circulars describing and illustrating goods of an intimate nature to the annoyance and disgust of many parents; and will he take steps to make the circulation of this type of literature through the post illegal?
§ Major TRYON
I am aware that circulars of the nature described are being sent; but I am advised that, unless the language used is indecent or obscene, I have no power to prohibit the transmission of such circulars by post.
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Does my right hon. and gallant Friend know that every time notices of birth appear in newspapers parents are subject to a deluge of disgusting correspondence of this kind?
